Distance Education

The Benefits Of Our Online Platform

Faculty members are provided a course developer’s guide that will help them lay out their course on paper before building it in the online environment. The creative team then works with the faculty member to help them come up with the best way to achieve the course’s intended learning outcomes. With the faculty member’s content expertise and the creative team’s ability to create high quality video content and fully interactive online exercises, the end product is a fully built, well-designed course that focuses on maximizing student success while maintaining academic integrity and rigor.

The Distance Education Creative Team

The creative team, consisting of instructional designers, a video editor, a motion graphics artist, graphic designer and web programmer, walks faculty through a course development process that includes the completion of a course developer’s guide, followed by content creation and the design of interactive activities, and ending with a turn-key Pilot course.  The unique partnership between faculty members and the creative team allows the faculty member to focus on their content and for the creative team to determine the best way to visualize and deliver the content. The creative team stays up-to-date with cutting edge and innovative technologies that will help faculty maximize their course development to create a high quality, student centered distance education course.
